BRFSS Data Requests

Requesting Oregon BRFSS Public Use Datasets


To request Oregon BRFSS public use datasets, please complete the online Data Use Form. Be sure to give a detailed description of how the data will be used and include the names and email addresses of the Principal Investigator (PI) and all data users who will have access to the dataset. Also include your contact information so that we can clarify your request if necessary. Please include a copy of your IRB approval as well.

To protect confidentiality, the Oregon BRFSS annual public use data files exclude county code, zip code and any other data element which might allow identification of a respondent. Persons needing these data elements should contact the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Research Data Center at: https://www.cdc.gov/rdc/index.htm. We make no exceptions to this policy.

A public use county file which combines and reweights four years of annual Oregon BRFSS data is available for county-level analysis. The county file is to be used only for generating county-level estimates for the entire four-year period; any attempt to generate county-level results by year will yield inaccurate results. 


Due to staff being reassigned to the COVID-19 response and increased volume of data requests, it may take up to six to eight weeks to fulfill requests for survey data.
